Assessment of resistance of gas flow through porous materials in terms of the hydrodynamic model
Author(s): Grzegorz Wałowski
Abstract: The hydrodynamics of gas flow through porous materials and the selected hydrodynamic models of the porous structure were described. The literature-based conditions of the research on the description of hydrodynamics of the gas flow through porous structures were analysed. The process issues were discussed in the field of the “category of research with respect to selected methods for describing hydrodynamics of the gas flow through porous deposits”. It is important to broaden the knowledge of gas hydrodynamics assessment in porous media so far unrecognized for the development of a new generation of clean energy sources, especially in the context of biogas or syngas production. The results of experimental research upon the assessment of the permeability of porous materials with respect to the gas flow. The suitability of calculation methods employed to calculate the hydrodynamics of the gas flow through porous materials was evaluated.
